  • Fly me to the moon
    Let me play among the stars
    Let me see what spring is like on
    A-jupiter and Mars

    In other words, hold my hand
    In other words, baby, kiss me

    Fill my heart with song
    And let me sing forevermore
    You are all I long for
    All I worship and adore

    In other words, please be true
    In other words, I love you

    Fill my heart with song
    Let me sing forevermore
    You are all I long for
    All I worship and adore

    In other words, please be true
    In other words
    In other words
    I love
    YouWriter/s: Bart Howard

  • Ricky from Ohsweken, -This song also appears in the PS3/XBOX 360 game Bayonetta
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOther cover versions: Bobby Womack took it No. 52 in 1968, LaVern Baker to No. 84 in 1965, and a duo by the name of Sam & Bill peaked at No. 98 in 1966!!!
  • Antonio from San Francisco, CaNot having yet listened to versions of this song made by any other than Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett, I frankly disagree with the majority in this case and prefer the latter's version way over the former's one.
  • Julia from Buenos Aires, ArgentinaThe song it's also featured in the ending credits of the anime series "Evangelion".
  • Jackryanfan from Moreno Valley, CaI've always been a Sinatra fan, my wedding songs were "Strangers in the Night" & "All the Way". I would sing "Fly me to the Moon" to my daughter when she was a baby and when she started speaking she would finish each verse, "moon", "stars", "Jupiter and Mars". It was our quincenera dance and soon to be our father-daughter dance for her wedding.
